Front court should help Baylor overcome point loss

WACO, Texas (AP) - Six different players have taken a turn at point guard in practice for Baylor since the departure of Pierre Jackson.

The Bears go into this season without the Big 12 leader in scoring and assists who in his two years led them to an NCAA regional final and an NIT championship.

Coach Scott Drew says the return of a great frontcourt will make it easier for all the guards. He expects multiple players to bring the ball up the court.

The Bears got a big boost with the return of 6-foot-9 senior forward Cory Jefferson and 7-1 center Isaiah Austin, both potential first-round NBA picks had they left school early.

Junior college transfer Kenny Chery will likely be the starting point guard for the Nov. 8 opener against Colorado.
